Hi! My name is Nadria, and I am currently studying Business Management and Finance at MSU. I spend my time in all of the different classrooms as I love the variety of ages among the children. My favorite thing about working with the kids is how they all differ in personalities and I love watching them all grow in their own ways. Outside of work and school I love being outside or doing crafts such as quilting and crocheting.
